Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo Alvarez

Oscar De La Hoya to Canelo Alvarez – “Put some f*cking respect on my name”

Boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions has announced that he plans to sue Canelo Alvarez.

De La Hoya used a press conference ahead of Alvarez’s upcoming fight with Jaime Munguia in Las Vegas to get the word out.

Alvarez insinuated that De La Hoya stole from him, and questioned whether or not fellow boxer Gennaidy Golovkin was paid from a rematch against Alvarez.

“I’m definitely going to sue for defamation,” De La Hoya told ESPN.

“Imagine the damage it can do to my reputation. Imagine what it can do to my business to fighters [who] are going to believe that.”

De La Hoya told ESPN that Golovkin was paid “everything he’s owed.”

“I’m going to defend myself when somebody’s speaking negative about me and that’s what I did,” De La Hoya said of his exchange with Alvarez. “This was my perfect moment to let him know how I feel. It felt so good. Finally — I was just holding my tongue for all these years — and finally I can f*cking tell him in his face, put some f*cking respect on my name.”
